Scan Documents to PDF with Your Android Phone’s Camera


Scanning a photo with a phone.

First, open Google Drive on your Android device and make sure you’re signed in with your Google account. Tap the floating “+” button in the bottom right corner.

Tap the plus button.

You’ll see a menu with some options. Select “Scan.”

Select "Scan."

The camera will immediately open—you may need to grant the app permission to use your camera first. Position the document so that it’s entirely in the frame, then snap the photo.

Take a photo of the document.

The next screen will ask you to confirm that you want to use the photo. Tap “OK” to proceed.

Tap "OK."

Google Drive will attempt to automatically crop and adjust the lighting. If it needs some help, you can manually adjust it with the crop and color buttons. To add another page to the document, tap the Add Page button.

Tools to adjust the scan.

Once all the pages are looking good, tap “Save” to finish.

Tap "Save" to finish.

Now you can give the file a name and choose which folder to save it to. The document will be saved as a PDF in the desired folder.

Save the document.
